1988 – 48×36 in. – oil on canvas
The colors of fall are always a relief from the constant green of summer. As I worked on this fairly large painting of the scene across the street from my studio, I remember purposely keeping the shapes of color uncomplicated by detail – reminiscent of Fairfield Porter. I waited for afternoon light so that the roofs would be lit along with a patch of light on the farthest building. And it was fun to juxtapose the colors of the bright fall leaves with the subtler grays of the white house in shadow.Contact the artist to send a comment or for purchase information.
